Ballet B.C. is presenting Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet in Nutcracker at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre in December with the help of some local dancers.

The show, running from Dec. 14 to 16, is set in turn-of-the-20th-century Canada and presents a unique take on the Christmas tradition, featuring endearing Canadian scenes such as a hockey game and a battle on Parliament Hill.

Included in the cast are scores of children in the roles of mice, soldiers, Mounties and snowflakes—complementing Tchaikovsky’s musical score.

Richmond dancers include mice Moira Guanlao (Arts Connection) and Mackenzie Brodie (Mi-Cher), angel Emmalia Morris (Arts Connection) and Mountie Meaghan Lorey (Arts Connection). Tickets, $30.25 to $87.75, are available at ticketmaster.ca or by calling 1-855-985-2787.
